Thank you to the awesome customer that ordered a new exhaust and sent it to me!!
The quality of the system is very good, welds are clean, and the fit is excellent. This system looks like it was specifically designed to fit this bike with a unique one-off canister. They also managed to keep the noise levels reasonable. I am impressed.
It did not include an o2 extender, but one is not needed. The o2 bung is a narrow band and accepts the stock o2 sensor without an adaptor.
The instructions could be better, but they were adequate. I found the system straight forward to install. I put the header together on the work bench, so I knew where each header tube went before I really started. Once mounted it is solid with excellent fit to the bike and to the different pieces on the system.
Install took me an hour and 20 minutes from start to finish. I removed the top radiator mounting bolts which allowed me to slide the radiator off the bottom mount. I also removed the bottom radiator bracket so it would not be in the way. I used new exhaust gaskets but think you would be fine reusing the stock ones as they are very thick. I used dabs of grease to hold the exhaust gaskets in place when mounting the header tubes. Once the exhaust was loosely on the bike, I moved from the back of the bike forward to tighten all the bolts. Many people do this backwards and start at the front of the bike which can give you alignment issues.
My highly calibrated bathroom scale weighed the stock exhaust at 16 lbs with the Leo vince also weighing in at 16 lbs with all the hardware for no weight savings. The price of a larger well constructed canister.
There is a DB killer that is removable ( I had to use a chisel to break a spot weld on the bolt). It made a nice decrease in noise levels at idle and lower rpm with minimal decrease in sound at full tilt. Dyno run and DB levels below
First is stock bike(red) vs Leo Vince exhaust with stock ecu (no tuning,blue): Nice gains across the range with no areas below the stock bike
